Debrief Notes

Debrief Notes by Idealign Software

Debrief™ is software for notes relating to experience, ideas, activities, contacts, and more. Where do you keep your notes today? Spiral binders, legal pads, composition books, scraps of paper? How fast can you find an idea you jotted down last week, last month, or last year? Imagine keeping your notes in one place, and not misplacing them again.

Notes are the core purpose of Debrief notes software. Make a note one time, and view it in many different contexts - by date, like a journal, log, or diary. Or by subject folder, like files in a drawer. And they can be viewed within additional contexts of the features mentioned below. Notes are searchable too.
